Tizzio: I know its a prototype, but still...body design looks crude and butt ugly!

@Hellraiser - same with a BMW. It's a car, it just need to drive. But if it had wood benches instead of leather seats, you might think twice... it still runs from A to B right?

Could use a complete redesign before full release.
Nothing hideous to look at, but nowhere near the Hasselblad.

arhmatic: Maybe it's just me, but "OM-D E-M1 II" (12 characters total) is a little of an overkill... Why put "E-"? Is there a "non E-" M1? Sure, all letters mean something, but do I care as a buyer? Look at car naming. "Audi Q5" is easy. "Olympus M2" is similarly easy.

This applies, in my mind, to all camera makers. Not picking just Olympus in particular. 2-3 characters would do just fine. Just a suggestion. For simplicity and ease. Win-win for all.

In about 5 years, Olympus will release the medium format version of the legendary OM-D E-M.

It will be called Olympus "OM-D E-M1 6x6MF"... Every letter means something, so deal with it!

I have an Indian friend named "Balasubramaniam" but he introduces himself "Bala". No further comment needed.

@Revenant yes, every single letter means something to someone, but it means zero to me. "BMW M3" is all I want to say and "M3" says it all...

Great camera and specs, I am sure it took millions of $$$ to develop. For a fraction of this, Fujifilm please hire a good graphic/industrial designer to add some finer touches to this. Such as the engravings on the ISO dial - A and C positions are just butt ugly and crowded. Show a little style... If this is intended for true artists with a sharp eye, this does matter. The added cost to you is probably .1%, the impact is significant.

Go ahead and vote me down, but this just basic attention to details that I'd expect from Fujifilm...

kristof93: 1.7x larger sensor (and relatively low resolution) isn't really worth all the hassle this brings over well developed FF systems that have brighter lenses anyway.

yes and no... with the same pixel count and larger sensor area, the pixel density is reduced. Theoretically, this should result in cleaner ISO.

"relatively low" is still way way over what I need...

nicolaiecostel: The 1970's called, they want their flash back :)))

The only reason I want a flash shaped like a 2016 melted soap bar is... you know... Otherwise, simple and square is the way. Nice and minimalist design from Metz, it's a buy from me.

What? Don't let *anyone* destroy it. I want my grandkids to see images like the one with the polar bear, in real life. Not in a history magazine...

otto k: Won't anyone make a phone just 3mm thicker? Really, I don't care about 7mm vs 10mm. It would allow for a better camera (enough with 1/3" and the like), a normal xenon flash (LED flash? Yeah, right) and a bigger battery... Plus easier to cool so faster in operation.

Pretty please with a cherry on the top?

I've always thought that this thin devices are just dumb. Sacrifice everything for what?

In terms of portability, the main reason my old dslr is always left home, nothing has changed. (wether a pro cares or not...) Everything else is fine.

It might be just me, but I am still looking for a decent way to attach a tablet to the tripod... This is something Manfrotto should look into...

No need any software or cable connection, just a tripod head that can take camera and phone, side by side...

On article Lenovo Phab2 Pro is the first Project Tango phone (29 comments in total)

Many good selling points here, but the battery is major.

I never understood and agreed on this thin device craze, that dramatically compromises the battery life. Up to the point where the phone is simply to thin to hold...

Good product Lenovo, hope others would follow.

That closing connection looks awkward... There are (some) flash drives that slide in to close. Why not make them all like that?
